Parliament to debate Chinese police activity in Europe  

In a debate with the Council and Commission on Wednesday, MEPs will assess the extent of Chinese law enforcement activities in Europe.

The debate comes in the aftermath of the Hungarian interior ministry recently having reached an agreement with Chinese authorities on allowing Chinese police officers to accompany their Hungarian colleagues on joint patrols in several locations across Hungary. Non-governmental organisations have also previously reported on a large number of “unofficial Chinese police stations” in several EU member states, with critics worrying that such outposts are being used by China to harass and suppress dissenting Chinese abroad.

Debate: Wednesday 10 April

Procedure: Statement by the Council and the Commission
